Safe Routes Hudson Schools Travel Plan Approved


Safe Routes Hudson first project was creating a School Travel Plan (STP) to apply for funding under the federal Safe Routes to Schools program. The SRTS program, administered by the Ohio Department of Transportation, annually awards grants of up to $500,000 for infrastructure and non-infrastructure enhancements that promote walking and biking to school among students in grades K-8.

The Hudson STP was approved in record time, which now means that the Safe Routes Hudson group can move forward with our application for funding specific projects. The decision and announcement on these grants will be made later on in the spring. More details are available from the Hudson Hub Times.
